Feedback summary: 

User feedback on Rademade's changes and new features have positive. After the streamlining of processes, the platform is successfully functional and reliable in delivering features faster. Although there are inevitable bugs, Rademade always resolves them.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of operations at Doxy.me. We’re a secure telemedicine platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

We brought them in to increase the development, speed, and features of our platform. They also fix bugs as well as giving their design and UX expertise.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Rademade provided outsourced development and design for our platform. They’ve helped with the patient check-in workflow and streamlined it to make the workflow easy for patients. This was done on the front- and backend. They used AngularJS and Node.js.

What is the team composition?

I work with Katerina (IT Recruiter, Rademade), Daniel (UX/UI designer, Rademade), and Andrei (Frontend Developer, Rademade). My main points of contact are Katerina and Andrei, but there have also been others along the way.

How did you come to work with Rademade?

Our CTO pointed us in their direction.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested over $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve had an ongoing partnership since May 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We receive positive user feedback on the changes they’ve made and features they’ve implemented. Their team has streamlined our processes and ability to deliver features faster. The functionality and reliability of the solution are excellent. Inevitably, there are bugs, but Rademade meets expectations in resolving them.

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

With some exceptions, Rademade has consistently delivered on time and within budget. Some things are always more complicated than anticipated. We talk almost every day and correspond through Slack and Jira.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re nice people. I flew out to meet them and really enjoyed it. Their team has the right idea as far as serving our customers and building delightful products go.

They understand that we’re all working with people, and we have to manage people as much as we manage a product. This really differentiates them from others we’ve used before. Other companies are usually transactional, but Rademade isn’t.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing beyond those standard clichés. You can always be better, faster, and cheaper I suppose. But regardless, I like working with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear on what you’re ultimately trying to achieve. It’s easy to engage with outsourcing development groups with very specific tasks. It’s even more effective to work toward understanding the whole and long-term vision.

Feedback summary: 

The quoting tool featured high-quality design and simplified customer experience, which were key differentiators for the business. This allowed the company to enter the insurance market as innovators. Rademade meshed well with the internal team, switching resources to achieve a better culture fit.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are administering self funded health plans for small companies in the USA. I am Chief Operations Officer and I coordinate development of tech tools to optimize operations and to reduce manual labor.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Rademade?

We have a product that is economically attractive to our customers. However the traditional way of selling it is very complicated for users. We had to dramatically improve user experience making it easier and intuitive.

What were your goals for this project?

Automating initial quoting workflow and creating new simplified user experience that matched the one of traditional insurance products.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Through recommendation and by results of preliminary pilot project. We considered two other candidates and Rademade scored highest by attractiveness of their designs, systematic approach to project management and the level of their team's energy and involvement.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They analysed business requirements, designed, programmed and launched online quoting system and made several design and workflow customizations.

What was the team composition?

The team was about six people including a project manager, business analyst, designer, full stack programmer, front-end programmer and tester. Project manager was our main point of contact through out the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

High quality design made major impact on how our business is perceived by customers and business partners. It also made easier for us to engage other vendors and associates. In a very short time we have received the tool to enter the market and position our company as an innovative player in this field.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The team has an established and well-developed project management structure. At the same time they were flexible enough to adapt to our specific preferences with tools and manner of communication. We communicated via Zoom with addition of shared documents on Google Docs. There team continued using other tools for their internal management.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Very strong company culture spreads through the whole their team and it also positively "infected" our people. They were able to switch some people on their side to achieve a better fit with our needs and personalities.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Feedback summary: 

Initial customer feedback was strong, and internal stakeholders are pleased with the site's visuals. Rademade adapted to changing requirements and modeled project management best practices as well. Customers can expect a skilled design partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Agenda Video focuses on creating videos for businesses—restaurants, real estate, hotels, events, and so on—for around $100. We provide editing and processing services using clients’ content.

I’m a co-founder and the COO of the company, responsible for making things happen. We have a second co-founder, responsible for marketing and sales. I’m responsible for product and website development, among other things.

We’re not exactly a professional video production company, given that we don’t also film the videos, but we’re developing a video editor through which people can make their own videos.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

We needed a web platform to promote ourselves in the digital world and present the services we provide.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Rademade designed and developed the website we use as a customer interface. The site has a payment integration and some client interaction elements. It was built on Ruby on Rails.

What is the team composition?

They assigned a team of 6–7 people, which varied across the project. Our main contact was the scrum master managing the team on the Rademade side.

How did you come to work with Rademade?

I asked for recommendations for a professional web development team and got the names of four companies. We sent them requests, and three of them agreed to participate in a small tender we organized. There were two competitors in the tender process at the end, and we chose Rademade because they were much more organized from a process point of view.

We were looking for a design-driven interface, and they created a better design. It took us a month to choose the winner, and, even though Rademade’s financial proposal was rather good, it was nearly equal to their competitor’s. We didn’t make a choice based on discounted prices, but on how they organized the process.

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost was £100,000, or around $120,000. They quoted us in dollars since they’re a Ukrainian company and they don’t use pounds.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Rademade in June or July 2018, and the collaboration is ongoing. We’re currently in support mode.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We have a good impression of what they’ve done. This was our first development experience, and Rademade was a consultant and a web developer in the digital world. It was important for us to sell an experience to our customers through the website, so it needed to be really good visually. We ended up liking the design, as did our customers.

The site is live, and it’s being accessed by customers. We don’t currently ask them for feedback, but we did in the beginning. We asked them what they liked about the site and whether they understood the kinds of services we provided. I’d give Rademade a 4+/5, but the result is dependent on the categories we have on the site.

From a functional point of view, the site is really reliable. We haven’t seen a lot of significant problems. There’ve been some minor bugs, but Rademade has generally provided a reliable product.

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

We were slightly over budget went over-schedule by 10–15%, but this wasn’t because of Rademade. We were developing a new product and a digital interface at the same time, so we had to change the scope of work in real-time based on customer feedback. That process was mainly on our side.

Rademade was good to very good in terms of project management. They used Jira and made us a part of the system, in order to share tasks. They’re well-organized—sometimes too organized—in terms of sprints and rules. At the same time, we learned a lot of skills about how to manage our internal activities from them. The scrum master from their side is very experienced, but it’s difficult to say whether it was a particular situation or whether Rademade has general consistency.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their design skills and highly structured approach to project management were outstanding.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were some problems connected to their development team, which had a turnover of 30–50%. There’s a hot market in Ukraine, as I understand, and every developer is trying to get a higher salary. At the same time, they managed substitutions properly and with care.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

The client needs to understand what they want from Rademade. Otherwise, it’ll cost them too much money.

Feedback summary: 

Rademade has consistently provided great solutions for the company’s third-party clients. Finding and fixing bugs via meticulous testing processes, they’ve proven to be both competent and reliable. The scalable team is communicative and independent, allowing the client to take a hands-off approach.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We provide custom software development for both web and mobile solutions. I’m the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

Rademade operates as a white-label contractor for us. They’ve delivered full-stack services for several different projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve completed three different projects for us. Whenever a project comes up, and it seems like we can leverage their resources, we take them on to develop for us.

In one project, they provided a full team to build a web solution for our third-party client, an energy broker. It was an e-commerce platform where users could purchase energy services from various vendors.

Rademade built the entire enrollment process of integrating the platform with different energy providers. They used Ruby on Rails and handled everything from project management to QA development.

In another engagement, they built a mobile app using React Native. This app was for an industrial steel company, and it enabled users to scan the company’s products to visualize factory testing results.

What is the team composition?

I’m always in contact with the account manager, no matter what product or project. They provide a full team. Recently, I worked with two developers, a QA engineer, and a DevOps specialist.

How did you come to work with Rademade?

I think my partner found them through a Google search. We were looking for developers in Ukraine, with Ruby on Rails competency in mind. We then realized that they had React Native capabilities, so we started using them for that too.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent $75,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2018, and it’s an ongoing engagement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

They’ve allowed me to be pretty hands-off with their work since they handle everything from project management to testing. Their QA process has been extremely helpful; they’re good at catching bugs and fixing them right away. Their services are very cost-effective and take a lot off my plate.

They’ve also been flexible in scaling their resources to be the appropriate size. If we need a full team, they can provide it. Not to mention that their work itself is very high-quality.

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re generally very good. With any project, things can get out of control, but I keep weekly tabs with my account manager who sets expectations for every two weeks. They’re good at adhering to time and budget. Whenever there’s an issue, we discuss it with the team and come to a solution.

We utilize JIRA to communicate. It allows me to see how each sprint is going and how the tasks are progressing. The time difference has actually worked to my advantage, where the work is done by the time I wake up. They speak excellent English, so language hasn’t been a problem, either.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication and the quality of their work are both stellar. They’re able to foresee issues then bring them up as quickly as possible.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could do better at keeping their hours in control. Even if they were having trouble, I’d appreciate it if they’d let us know a little sooner. That way, we wouldn’t have to go over budget. That hasn’t happened more than once or twice, so it’s not a major issue.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Keep good communication with them, and they’ll produce quality solutions. They’ll be successful for you.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a co-founder of Lemonfrog. We run online marketplaces for finding babysitters, tutors, and cleaners as well as other things across Switzerland, Austria, Spain, and Germany.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

All of our platforms are powered by a centralized software solution, which has been on the market for about 10 years. It’s a complex but stable product that helps us manage our different websites. Rademade joined the project to help our main development partner build out and implement our ideas. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

For the past few years, we’ve worked with Rademade to add additional features to our software and existing platforms. 

Our main focus has always been making our onboarding process easier for users. They’ve done several projects such as improving the visuals on the frontend and integrating external software to identify users.

All of our platforms are web-based, using Ruby on Rails on the backend and React on the frontend. We also use HTML, CSS, and MySQL.

What is the team composition?

The account manager is our main point of contact. We started with one developer and now have five.

How did you come to work with Rademade?

One of the reasons why we needed another software provider was because the project was getting too expensive. We decided to look for more cost-effective developers and eventually met Rademade at a conference. After calling them, we started the engagement.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve spent between $50,000–$200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in September 2018, and it’s an ongoing project. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We didn’t have a frontend part before, so the new interface is a big win. I appreciate that they have a good understanding of our software. That allows them to give good inputs and help with the design and implementation.

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

Our main software provider is still in charge of a lot of the project management, so Rademade is mostly responsible for development and design support. 

That being said, I’m very happy with their account manager’s communication skills, qualifications, and desire to help us. They’re very motivated and put a lot of effort into making us happy.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The value for our money is a key driver for us, which is why we’ll continue to scale up with Rademade. We get far more for our money than with other software providers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, everything is fine. If they got bigger, we could switch over to them entirely as our software developer.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

At the end of the day, it’s about education, communication, and motivation, and Rademade brings all of those factors. Of course, there’s always a quality difference between individual developers, so you need a bit of luck to get the best. But that goes for any software provider.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of a language class marketplace. We sell English classes in ten countries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

We needed help to develop the platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

During the first 3–4 years of our collaboration, we weren’t engaged in active development. They worked a few hours per week. In the last few years, Rademade developed our website, which helps users select language courses. Using PHP, their team’s front- and backend developers, as well as designers, built the platform from scratch. Their frontend developers have also helped to create a mobile version of the website.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with the developers directly. The Rademade team includes PHP and frontend developers as well as a designer and a business analyst. I’m also in contact with the account managers once a month. We haven’t changed the team over the years because they’re proactive.

How did you come to work with Rademade?

I met the CEO of Rademade years ago when I asked him if an idea I had could be developed. The CEO answered that his company could develop everything, which I liked. After a few years, we started the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $300,000 with Rademade.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2011, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Their commitment to the website isn’t based on conversions. I don’t have figures but plan to work with Rademade for the next few years.

Today, our marketplace experienced more than 10,000 people per two hours, which caused some server issues. I called Rademade to help as soon as possible and within 20 minutes their team was helping me.

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate via Asana and Telegram. Also, every Monday we hold a meeting when we plan tasks to be completed by Friday, which is when we regroup. Rademade doesn’t have a project manager but we have one on our side.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re a proactive team that cares about results. When I ask them to complete one task, they brainstorm ideas and ask more questions. Rademade cares about what they do.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing they could improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Feedback summary: 

While the engagement is ongoing, the app is now successfully onboarding users. Rademade takes the time to fully understand the goals of a client to best deliver a fully customized solution. Despite working remotely, their team is incredibly communicative and responsive. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am one of the founders, and CEO, of We Are Allies AB, a small start-up in Stockholm, Sweden. In the summer of 2019, we released Allies, a digital service for families to synch their kids schedules together, rather than on their own. For the user, Allies is an app and that app was, to a large extent, devloped by RadeMade in Kiev, Ukraine.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Rademade?

We hired RadeMade to develop the application for our users.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to deliver a barebone service, but one that was prepared for further development as our user base started to grow.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were introduced to RadeMade by a broker (of sorts), in Sweden.

Describe the project in detail.

We already had the business plan, communication plan, design and graphics pretty much nailed down when we first met the people of RadeMadein Kyiv, Ukraine. Once there, they gave is their input and quite a few details were changed, based on that. For the duration of the project, all our communications happened across Slack and Hangout, which was sufficient to complete the project. However, both us and they were very happy with having met in person before that.

I strongly suggest meeting for two days and getting a feel for one another. For almost 7 months we worked closely on developing first an iOS version of the app, and then an Android version. During that time, w few changes were made, of which one was quite major. We instigated it, and RadeMade adapted to the new situation.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of me, my founding partner (CTO), a project manager, a developer, a Q&A resource and (initially) a graphics designer. During the course of the project, we replaced the Q&A resource and gradually phased out the graphics and design, as the project was coming together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Both I and my founding partner recognize RadeMades everpresent will to deliver as one of the key parts of the success of this project. We were well aware that we were introducing something that was not completely easy to describe to neither the public or a seasoned development team, but they quickly assessed what we needed, and when they did not, they made sure they understood what we wanted. Given that most of our communication happened via screens and not in real life, that will to understand and perform sets RadeMade apart. Also, we're onboarding users all the time, as a result of that.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very. There was a stand-up, a brief overview of each day, at 9.45 every morning, which was sometimes brief, sometimes a bit longer. After that, most communications happened via Slack with the occasional call - planned or not - in between. In hindsight, we really appreciate the thorough debriefings of each sprint, though I must admit at the time, I sometimes thought they went on too long. But in hindsight - no. They were an excellent mean to make sure everybody were on board. In order to keep track of progress, we used Figma and Jira to track each sprint and what was in it, what needed to be done and what was accomplished. Fantastic!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Rademade's will to perform and subsequently understand what we wanted from them impressed us. I NEVER doubted they understood what we were aiming for, rather the opposite. Never.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There are cultural differences between Sweden and Ukraine, obviously. As Sweden has a very open management culture - or at least we try to - we want everyone to have a say even if this takes time. The upside is you get everyone involved. It took a while for the guys in Ukraina to latch on to that, as developing in Eastern Europe tends to be thought of as a mail-a-list-of-things-to-do. This is completely wrong as there is a huge pool of experience there, one you should tap into. On the other hand, I think this is something that could be thought of earlier at the developing side of the table. Claim your spot at it!

The working demo has received positive feedback from key stakeholders. Rademade’s ability to turn constructive feedback into implementable code was a hallmark of their work. While there were some minor delays, the team’s quality deliverables set them up for potential future engagement.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of a startup working with reporting software for medium to large businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Rademade?

I needed to hire an external resource to help develop a demo of a B2B reporting software.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted a workable demo that had some live parts and visualized the other parts of the future program from a frontend perspective.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I found them through referrals.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Rademade developed an MVP/demo for a B2B management reporting software. They designed the program, coded the frontend, and built two live backend modules.

What was the team composition?

I worked with one scrum master, one full-stack developer, one business analyst, a half-time frontend developer, and a half-time designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The demo is now live, and is being presented to potential future customers. I’ve received good feedback so far. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management as a whole was up and down. We struggled to figure out how to work together at first. However, Rademade was very good at incorporating feedback so they found an efficient way of driving the project forward.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The ability to incorporate feedback was most impressive. I also appreciated the level of competence of the various team members.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The team composition could be smaller as I could have served the business analyst role. I’ve also suggested that they add one-on-one meetings with the main developers to their process. That was the workaround that made the project move forward more quickly.

Their messaging service integration and support helped to win new clients at a conference held by a mobile messaging service. Rademade is flexible about accommodating changes to the project scope, and their involvement has generated internal satisfaction.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the head of new product development for an AI and bot platform company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

Our main product is a platform that allows for building bots. We needed help with software development and QA.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They have developed additional content and have expanded the features of our product, using technology such as used technology such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Node.js. They have also done research and development. Since the product is intended to do any type of automation, any innovations of ours usually require a little bit of research to figure out the best way.

What is the team composition?

There are five people assigned to the project, but I have been in contact with about 15 people throughout the project.

How did you come to work with Rademade?

Our company needed a way to expand on the features our platform has, and we were looking for options. We looked them up locally. One of our offices is based in Kyiv and we wanted to have one of the partners nearby.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve spent around $150,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began the collaboration in 2018, and it is an ongoing engagement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They have supported different messaging services such as Twitter, Telegram, and direct messages, thus providing value to our business. We were invited to a conference held by WhatsApp in Dubai, and because we had already been developing integration with this messenger, we acquired a number of clients there. It generated business for us. We are happy with their service and we plan on expanding the team.

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Jira for project and task management. I am happy with their project management and the scrum methodology we’ve used. I only have positive feedback about their ability to adapt and respond to change. During integrations, we learn new information which changes the scope or changes how we do the integration itself, and they have been flexible with those changes.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their flexibility, adaptability, and scope changes have been great for us. Not every partner is able to respond as well to those things.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing at the moment.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the operations director for a jewelry e-commerce platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rademade?

We reached out to Rademade to help us improve some of our backend processes on our website, specifically involving product data uploading that would enable our designers to log in and add product information themselves. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Rademade developed the backend of our Shopify website from scratch, using Ruby on Rails. They incorporated features that allow our designers to upload product information as needed easily. 

What is the team composition? 

We work with about five people on their team, including a lead developer, a scrum master, and a testing lead. 

How did you come to work with Rademade?

I researched a number of firms online and ultimately decided to work with Rademade based on the initial conversations I had with one of their customer account managers. I liked that they have a marketplace solution and understand our business. They wanted us to focus more on marketing our products than wasting time on tasks that should be automated. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested between $10,000–$50,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

They started working on the platform around October 2018, and they continue to provide support: troubleshooting issues, adding new features, and incorporating feedback from users. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Rademade automated a lot of internal processes, streamlining our overall workflow. They quickly grasped our complex business requirements and delivered exactly what we needed. 

How did Rademade perform from a project management standpoint?

They have agile processes in place, so we talk to them daily and use Jira to track project tasks. They've been very organized and proactive overall. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're very relatable. I liked that they're always willing to get on the phone to go over things more in-depth, bringing more of a human element to the partnership.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It's not entirely their fault, but what I've learned from this process is that it would be helpful to have seen screenshots or other visuals of different features before going into development. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Keep all lines of communication open to ensure both teams are on the same page. There were times when I got too busy to oversee what Rademade's team was doing, so they were forced to make some quick decisions without me.
